This selection of 49 articles deals with the crises and conflicts of urban education. Articles discuss the impact of urbanization, social stratification, the effects of urban poverty on black and Puerto Rican families, and the disadvantaged school dropout. Many articles deal with proposed solutions. Among these are readings which discuss the technology necessary to make both curriculum and school organization more relevant to the needs of inner city youth. Curriculum changes proposed include ungraded classes and bilingual education. The school's role of making employment opportunity available, youth alienation, the problems and complexities of federal aid to education, and aspects of school community relationships are also treated.

Low income youth, unemployment, vocational training and the Job Corps by Francis P Purcell( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past history of varied operations of the Job Corps Centers indicates that the high incidence of failure to acculturize trainees to socially acceptable behavior has been due to the Centers' limited, vocational orientation. The Centers should identify the different types of deviant behavior and treat them individually. Also, they should help the disadvantaged youth acquire new values and aspirations represented by the program. (Kg)

Education and the Development of in-Residence Training Programs, PartI, Part Ii by Robert L Melican( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The two parts of this discussion consider the development of residential programs for vocational and social training to meet the problems of the low-income school dropout. Part I reviews the historical background of residency programs in such educational institutions as colleges, universities, churches, and summer camps. Part ii deals with the antecedents of the job corps (the civilian conservation corps and the national youth administration) and the motivations for their establishment--the need for public works programs and for education and training of low-income youth. It was noted that during previous periods of high youth unemployment, the outbreak of wars diminished the seriousness of the problem, but, during the 1960's, technological unemployment has increased the need for action to fill the job needs of youth. The enormity of the present and predicted dropout population requires, it is felt, considerably more extensive programs than the job corps can now provide. This article was published in "purcell letters," numbers 9 and 10, january 30 and february 13, 1967 and is circulated privately to educators by subscription from science research associates, 259 east erie street, chicago, illinois 60611.
